Sail Date: Oct 2016
Foyer of Celebrity Equinox decorated for Halloween
One of the incredible carved pumpkins for Halloween on board the Celebrity

We have taken over 50 cruises (with a variety of cruise lines) and love Celebrity. This was our first voyage, however, on the Equinox, The service, staff and food exceeded our expectations. The ship was constantly being cleaned and it sparkled. Captain Nestoroudis gave great daily addresses from the bridge and had a good sense of humor. It was fun to see Alejandro (Cruise Director). We sailed with him previously on the Silhouette. Justin, the Activities Director, was great (as was his staff). The 8 sea days zoomed by with programs for every interest. Beyond The Podium speakers Dr. Sam Glassner and Michael Fuller were excellent. The carved pumpkins in the foyer for Halloween were incredible. While there were a lot - and wide variety - of activities, I would like to see Celebrity add water exercise for those of us who are not able to do the more energetic movement programs.

Port Reviews

Cartagena (Spain)

We have previously been to Cartegena (Spain). This time we enjoyed walking around the city. The pedestrian walkways are beautiful but I imagine quite slick when they get wet.


We did our own walking tour around the city. It was quite hot and, since we will be returning in 2017 to explore outside the city, we did not join an organized tour.


We took the Hop On/Hop Off bus (and actually did the loop 3 times!). Since we will be returning here in 2017, and doing a tour outside the city, the HoHo bus was fine.


We arrived in the Barcelona late in the evening, the day prior to the cruise departure. We have been to Barcelona many times and love it. Just did not have time to explore more this trip.
